PALM SPRINGS, Calif. – White Party Palm Springs 2012, called the largest gay dance music festival in the world, concluded with record attendance on Easter weekend, filled with cutting-edge music and all-star entertainment.
The 23rd annual gathering exceeded 30,000 revelers for eight parties over 72 hours, leading White Party producer Jeffrey Sanker to declare that this year's event was a “huge success” as host hotels sold out and an international audience proved more diverse than ever.
"The strong roster of DJs and talent, ranging from Australian spin-masters Nervo to Mary J. Blige, who worked the crowd into a frenzy on Saturday night at the Convention Center, along with our Sunday choreographed fireworks tribute to Whitney Houston and a show-stopping performance from 'X Factor' winner Melanie Amaro left memories for years to come," Sanker said.
Also appearing through the weekend were "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star Lisa Vanderpump (who was crowned Queen of the White Party along with her dog Giggy); disco legend France Joli; pop-chart toppers JoJo and Jessie and the Toy Boys; rising stars Liz Primo, Collette Carr, Kwanza Jones, and much more.
The Palm Springs Bureau of Tourism recognizes White Party among the city’s highest revenue-generating annual tourism events, bringing in more than $1 million in hotel occupancy tax alone.
